29/10/06

Shoulder Press 12.5kg 1x6, 2x4
Tricep Extensions 10kg 3x10

Upped the weights on the second day of my workout too. Could do with weighing myself. I am stronger, but having doubts about whether I am bigger/heavier and whether I am eating enough?

Good lifting Benny :D

If you are worried if you are eating enough you probably aren't eating enough! Aim for 1-1.5kg of gain every month. If you are not seeing that gain eat more :D

18/11/06

Football for 1 1/2 hours, pulled my groin I think... :x

Then joined a gym...so my workout was a bit odd as I tried to work out what discs weighed what, and scratched my head as to what I was lifting at home...it didn't appear to be obvious.

Bench Press 40kg 1 x 10, 50kg 1 x 4, 45kg 2 x 5 (not good, as I said I was getting used to what was what...next time I am going to use the Smith I think as I don't have a spotter.)
Dead lift 50kg 2 x 6, 1 x 3
Calf Raises 50kg 3 x 12
Bicep curls 25kg 2 x 8, 1 x 4 (couldn't remember what I was lifting before and so was a bit off the mark, although it felt good...my form was good I think too as I had a mirror to check it)
Crunches 45kg 1 x 8, 2 x 7 (using some odd crunch machine)
V-ups 1 x 12, 2 x 10 (too much on the above? or just being lazy?)
